Whitt Behavior Expectations and School-Wide Plan
Student behavior directly impacts student learning. Therefore, one of the most important lessons education should teach is character development. While it isn’t a subject that is directly taught, it underlies the whole education structure. Character Education leads to the development of self-discipline, which is the key to life-long success and making dreams come true! The following beliefs guide our school-wide behavior plan and are congruent with GPISD’s student code of conduct:
- The ultimate goal is that students take control of their own behaviors and recognize both positive and negative consequences are a direct result of their choices.
- To effectively teach you must build relational capacity
- Positive interactions and campus behavior expectations need to be:
- All discipline situations are teaching opportunities.
- All children respond to any given situation with the tools they have
- Classroom behavior expectations are reflective of the campus plan
- Certain unacceptable behaviors are non-negotiable in the school setting and must be dealt with immediately.
